Nails/NOTD: China Glaze - Ruby Pumps French Tips

This is the nail look I created for this club makeup look posted here.  I've never done french tips before so I wasn't really sure what the heck I was doing. This was a little rushed, but I thought it turned out well considering I wasn't using french tip strips. I originally wanted to use a nude base but I didn't have the time, so I just went with a clear base coat, 3 red coats on the tips and then a top coat. Even though I let Ruby Pumps completely dry before applying the top coat, it picked up some red and transferred it onto the clear polish. :-(

  natural light - no flash

with flash

I achieved this look with:
1 coat of Avon's NAIL EXPERTS Smooth Beginnings Base Coat 
3 coats of China Glaze - Ruby Pumps (just on the tips)
1 coat of Avon's NAIL EXPERTS UV Gloss Guard Top Coat
